NAME ^

HTML::FormFu::Deflator::CompoundSplit - CompoundSplit deflator

SYNOPSIS ^

    ---
    element:
      - type: Multi
        name: address
        
        elements:
          - name: number
          - name: street
        
        deflator:
          - type: CompoundSplit

    # set the default
    
    $form->get_field('address')->default( $address );

DESCRIPTION ^

Deflator to allow you to set several field's values at once.

For use with a HTML::FormFu::Element::Multi group of fields.

A default value passed to the Multi field will be split according to the "split" setting, and its resulting parts passed to its child elements.

METHODS ^

split

Arguments: $regex

Default Value: qr/ +/

Regex used to split the default value. Defaults to a regex matching 1 or more space characters.

join

Arguments: $string

Default Value: ' '

If spliting the value results in more parts than there are fields, any extra parts are joined again to form the value for the last field. The value of "join" is used to join these values.

Defaults to a single space.

For example, if the Multi element contains fields number and name, and is given the value 10 Downing Street; when split this results in 3 parts: 10, Downing and Street. In this case, the 1st part, 10 is assigned to the first field, and the 2nd and 3rd parts are re-joined with a space to give the single value Downing Street, which is assigned to the 2nd field.

field_order

Arguments: \@order

If the parts from the split value should be assigned to the fields in a different order, you must provide an arrayref containing the names, in the order they should be assigned to.
